Naming your kids...

Why is that it appears that with certain generations they all name their kids the same name? There are so many names out there... Why do we group up and name them same names?

I'm not the cat lady type. I'm more like an actual cat. I want affection when I want it and on my own terms. The rest of the time I want to claw out your eyes and piss in your shoes.  

It's wrong to be a bully with one exception. It's ok to bully those you THINK are a bully.

My oldest is named Riley which us super popular for his generation. I named him after Buffy and think tv ( pop culture) is a huge influence and that's why.

I really only just met (well on here) someone with a DS that has the same name as mine, and I didn't think his was too far fetched!

Idk know. I didn't want a super common name for my kids. CJ is named after his dad, emmarie was my spin on plain Emma which hubby wanted (so glad we did something different) and Ethan which has also been my favorite name, his is more common but still nothing like the current Caden, aiden, Emma, Isabella situation currently happening,

Eh. Russian names generally haven't changed in the past...500 years or so LOL! I gave my daughter a specific name thinking no one else would have it but there are 3 other girls with the same name at my son's gym class.

I use names I really like. Sometimes they're popular, sometimes they're not.
